The Z-BOMB is a Timing Retard Calibrator that maximizes engine performance for up to a 7 HP gain over stock. That's a pretty impressive power boost for very little money. The simple, plug-in unit installs in minutes with just a screwdriver and a 5mm hex key. The Z-Bomb integrates perfectly with all Z-Fi EMS products as well as other aftermarket tuning units.

It was an easy plug-in upgrade. I haven't tested it for changes in top speed, but with increased power or not, the z-bomb smoothed out my everyday ride considerably. It doesn't feel like riding a huge vibrator anymore. My everyday comute is at 80-85mph, but now I catch myself doing 90-100 all teh time cause it feels the same.

Cheapest 7 HP you'll ever find
10 minute install to eliminate factory timing r-etard above 8k RPMs. Directions were perfect, install was easy and there is a noticeable difference above 10k RPMs.

easy install. great benefits
with the incredibly easy install and instant benefits the z-bomb is an easy choice. With nothing but a 5mm hex, a screwdriver, and an 8mm socket this install is easy for anyone to complete in minutes. For best results the z-fi fuel controller and the self mapping tool should be used. I definitely recommend this product for anyone looking to get a little more out of their motorcycle.

Matthew M:I don't think that's correct. The device simply tricks the bike's ECU into not retarding the timing at peak RPM's. Retarding the timing was done to reduce max decibel levels so it would meet U.S. noise standards. The Z-Bomb overrides a very specific function of the ECU, there is nothing to tune or adjust.
Installing a ignition tuning module would allow the ability to tune the bike's ignition settings, but it would negate the need for the Z-Bomb because now the owner can manually override the undesirable ignition settings from the ECU, including those at the higher RPM range.
I didn't encounter any adverse effects from the unit I installed in my bike. It's important to note that my bike is a 2013 CBR600rr and that model year changed the ECU programing and did not retard the timing at higher RPM's. Honda met the U.S. noise standards by improving the stock muffler. I no longer have the Z-Bomb installed on my bike. It had no effect on my bike at all: It neither improved the performance of the engine when it was installed, nor produce any adverse effects.
